First Outfit Post of 2015!



This pin is in support of my friend's collection of poetry out this Spring, link below. 




A little bit of plaid peaking out is never a bad idea.

And we're back with outfits! I wore this on Saturday for a panel discussion of writers on publishing, so I definitely wanted to look professional, yet creative. I'm doing some sneaky layering here with long-john leggings under these leather-effect pants, and it may seem like I have a plaid shirt under a grey sweater, but in fact it's just one piece. (You may recall this post on layered one pieces here.) But, even though the top is a single garment (grey in the front, plaid in the back and collar) I still have a long-sleeved tee underneath because it was mighty frigid on Saturday, even in the sun. 

The rest of this month and into February will be challenging, as it is every winter, to stay stylish and warm. In years past I fought against the weather going around in heels and/or not wearing a proper coat, but this year, my 34th winter on this earth, I've decided to stop making outfitting harder on myself. I plan on staying warm, but still chic, what this means for the blog is that you'll most likely see a lot of repeated pieces and possibly looks with only a few minor tweaks. 

AND in case you were interested, I was on the panel because of my chapbook "Trestling" available through Flutter Press
